Altro solutions

We engage with the challenges facing our customers.

Where noise reduction is needed we have our new Altro Wood Safety Comfort safety floor. The natural wood-look designs are inspired by nature and are an ideal choice for areas that need to look good and provide a more homely, non-clinical look. At 2.85mm thick, it provides comfort underfoot and also offers 14dB impact sound reduction. It is suitable for wheeled traffic and low residual indentation facilitates the flexible use of equipment and furniture, including hospital beds.

Comfort in design

For areas that do not need enhanced slip resistance we have:

  • 3.9mm Altro Serenade which absorbs sound up to 19dB, helps to reduce noise levels, contributes to a quieter atmosphere and provides comfort underfoot, making it a great solution for well-used spaces that still need to look good and welcoming
  • 2.6mm Altro Orchestra is great for areas where noise reduction is needed, offering a level of impact sound reduction up to 15dB. It is available in 40 colours and designs varying from calming neutrals reflecting tones of nature, to vibrant shades for design flexibility

To help you choose the right floors and walls for each area of a hospital, the Altro Product Selector offers guidance in an instant.
